Alexa Has Been Eavesdropping On You This Whole Time
May 6, 2019
Would you let a stranger eavesdrop in your home and keep the recordings? For most people, the answer is, “Are you crazy?”
Yet that’s essentially what Amazon has been doing to millions of us with its assistant Alexa in microphone-equipped Echo speakers. And it’s hardly alone: Bugging our homes is Silicon Valley’s next frontier.
Many smart-speaker owners don’t realize it, but Amazon keeps a copy of everything Alexa records after it hears its name. Apple’s Siri, and until recently Google’s Assistant, by default also keep recordings to help train their artificial intelligences.

Quite funny but really unimportant because they won’t be able to take their money “where” they are going, nor to the stops along the way to their final destination!

Red Across The Board With Paper Over Rock (Ag/Au)
Good Monday Morning Folks,
We start our week off with a mixing of numbers with Gold still trading higher but barely with the price at $1,282 up 70 cents and close to the low of $1,281.30 with the high at $1,287.40. July Silver has been kept down ever since it opened with the trade now at $14.86 down 11.8 cents with the low right there at $14.85 with the high at $14.99, once again the Maginot Line in price is kept in place as we see physical deliveries continue to drain supplies but not in paper. The US Dollar is simply there today with the trade’s value at 97.335, up 7.5 points with the high at 97.38 and the low at 97.225. Of course all this happened while the US was not trading, before 5 am pst, and a few hours before the London close.
Gold’s price under the volatility of the Venezuelan Bolivar is now priced at 12,803.98, gaining another 48.94 Bolivar over the weekend with Silver at 148.414 Bolivar, gaining 1.897. Argentina’s Peso has Gold price at 57,030.56, losing some 128.93 A-Pesos from that monstrous gain on Friday with Silver now at 660.983.
The Physical Deliveries in May Silver still show 1,011 demands for product with a Volume of 21 posted up on the board so far this morning. The very first purchase of the week in the May contract was done almost immediately when the markets opened on Sunday night with that price filled at $14.92 with only 2 prices showing up on May’s order board, the last price is at $14.81 (proven in the tick chart). With the demands still showing up at COMEX and the physicals continuing to dry up (in Mexico) things couldn’t be more interesting than they are right now. As of this morning, Silver’s Overall Paper Count now stands at 202,302 Overnighters holding on as the shorts had to add more positions in order to keep Silver from breaking thru that Maginot Line and closing higher than it did on Friday.
Mexico has one of the largest deposits of Silver anywhere on the planet and less of it is coming out after Newmont-Goldcorp merger was finalized, “The Penasquito Mine, which produced more than a 500,000 ounces of gold and 25 million ounces of silver in a single year, has been dealing with a blockade of its operations since March 27th”. It’s all about the water as Steve St. Angelo points out “the real problem at Penasquito comes down the massive amount of water it consumes to process the enormous amount of ore it mines”. How much longer will the shutdown last and what is the damage to the central banks delivery system with their manipulated prices vs. the demands of life, when both need water which is in limited supply?
Sunday night’s starting trades has put some “red across the global boards” as the media talks about Trump Tweets being the cause (blaming the messenger and not the message) as Trump keeps his promise about the delay game in negotiations between the 2 largest economies. If the delay game is being played, it will hurt the delayer with more Tariffs being added and that is exactly what Trump Tweeted and exactly what China attempted. China delayed and now will pay, it is as simple as that. The next level of Tariffs is on at the same time a shortage of physicals in precious metals is weakening the stance of paper over rock as the central planners claimed they were not prepared, bullshit! They knew all this, which is why we have so much paper covering rock.
Nothing has changed our views about anything these days, which is why we still hold on to the physicals as the paper game continues to its end. So hang on tight, keep a positive thought in the brain basket, and a smile on the face, and as always …
